my new tattoo

my tattoo

 

“Every bird that flies has the thread of the infinite in its claw” ~ Victor Hugo

Remember when I wrote a while back that I wanted a second tattoo?

I finally got it!

This testament on my body to my mother’s transformation is perfect perfect perfect. I really couldn’t be happier.  I know if she were alive she would think it was weird I memorialized her with a tattoo- but she’s not alive, and if her spirit has a shred of awareness about the fact that I inked an image of flight, of escaping and eclipsing the boundaries of life on my leg, I don’t think she minds at all.
